Hi friends
I just realized today’s my 5 year anniversary on LJS. Just wanted to thank all of the great members who have helped me along the way and hope I’ve helped a couple folks myself . It was the first forum I’d ever participated in and I have found it to be a fun place to explore, learn and share.I have gained some great friends here and hope to make many more friends in the days and years to follow.
Thanks to you all

YES! And, Thank you so very much for your generous contributions to the site! I’ve learned quite a lot in my short journey here; often from your inputs. Wish I were on the west coast and could meet you personally and maybe even take a class from you.

I’m happy to have “met” you, Jim and hope to “see” you for many more half-decades!

Congrats, I have only been here a short while and already you are an icon of LJ’s to me. I have started at the very first project post and worked my way through every sinlge page and must have viewed more than a 1000 projects and your face is just about in all of them. What I’m trying to say is that I believe that you have been an inspiration to many of our LJ brothers and sisters. Hopefully I will also get to know you beter. Have an awesome day.
